New radar in Okla. may improve tornado forecasting; Proposed NWS bill: Room for everyone?; Endless winter continues in Montana; Map shows earthquake-shaking potential in the Reno-Tahoe area; Exploding toads puzzle German scientists; Aurora Watch for Canada, Alaska; Lunar eclipse pics

New Radar In Okla. May Improve Tornado Forecasting: New radar aims to improve 75 percent false-alarm rate on tornadoes | More info from The Chickasha Express-Star … Oklahoma City’s KFOR-TV was the first in the U.S. to purchase a million-watt radar, four times more powerful than many.

Room For Everyone?: That proposed National Weather Service bill story has made it onto USAToday.com: Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) is pushing a bill that some say would restrict information on the National Weather Service’s Web site. As I stated earlier in this blog, I turn to the NWS first when severe weather is headed my way, and it would be a shame if, one day, NWS radar images and 7-day forecast pages were gone. It doesn’t keep me from regularly visiting the other sites: During severe weather, NWS Java loops of radar images take longer and longer to load. Even when all is loading well, I frequently visit my local NBC affiliate KXAS-TV, Wunderground, Intellicast, AccuWeather and, yes, Weather.com. Each have unique displays, such as the Wunderground Storm Tracks or Intellicast Radar Summary, which show large cells’ heights and projected movements (both of these are included in the city pages of this Web site). I believe that there’s room for everyone (including this site :) What do you think?

Other Weather News: ‘Endless winter’ continues in Montana

Sierra Earthquake Risk: California and Nevada share more than just a border. They share faults. A map unveiled by the Department of Conservation’s California Geological Survey Tuesday shows earthquake shaking potential in the Reno-Tahoe area. Full story … As always, a list of current earthquakes is in the left column of this page.

Late-season snow was no problem for most plants in Flint, Michigan

Alaska bracing for breakup

Site Announcements: And finally, you may have noticed the links to the WXnation.com Hotel Locator, which launched on Monday. The site includes detailed listings, photos, and online reservations for more than 26,000 hotels and motels across the United States and Canada. The site’s logo features a picture of a hotel I stayed in earlier this month (off I-44 in Terre Haute, Ind.), and the small plane in the logo is from a picture I took of an American Airlines jet flying over Fort Worth, the home of AA. I hope you find this new feature useful!

New Pope!: Benedict XVI Live video feed from St. Peter’s Square

Severe Weather: Stormy weather thunders across southeast Nebraska: Tornadoes were reported throughout the region; hail apparently injured at least one person.

OKC Bombing 10 years ago today

Different Types Of Horror: Huge wave turns cruise-ship holiday to horror

Another type of horror was viewed by my wife and I, despite bad reviews: Amityville Horror takes $23M toll on tax weekend … I thought it was OK, but think the unseen (such as the empty chair rocking in the 1979 original) is more frightening than gory visuals.

Chase a tornado, buy Britney’s gum, you can have it all

Weird News: Local 4 camera captures object in Detroit night sky

Space News: SpaceWeather.com has details on the annual Lyrid meteor shower, peaking this Friday morning. Also, I’m not sure how long this has been on the site, but I like their current conditions in space section in the top left…
